Aspergers makes you think differently; that’s good

People with Aspergers think differently, therefore the masses don’t understand us. Why do we think differently? Because we do. Everyone thinks differently, but people with Aspergers think differently in a different way. We think in a very literal way and usually respond in a very literal way.

While being literal makes sense to us, it doesn’t make sense to those who don’t know us. People aren’t familiar with the dictionary and the different meanings of could, should, would, will, may, and can. Each word is significantly different, yet normies see them as meaning the same thing. I am not sure why, but they do. Does that make them dumb? My knee jerk response would be yes, but after further examination I realize this is an incorrect conclusion. People may not understand the literal meaning of the dictionary, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t smart in other areas. Who reads the dictionary for fun? I do, but I doubt too many others do.

I look forward to reading your comments!

    I observe nature, and animals seem to be literal thinkers too. I wonder if this is one of the reasons why many people with Aspergers and Autism have good relationships with animals.

    My daughter reads dictionaries and thesauruses for fun. She also like Baby Name books with the history of the names. But she extremely hates babies with a passion. They are her Kriptonite.
